Russell Okung injury: Seahawks LT seeks second opinion on toe

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Seahawks' left tackle Russell Okung will get more information on his toe injury from Dr. Robert Anderson, a foot specialist.

Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung was diagnosed with a torn ligament in his toe shortly after the Seahawks 29-3 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. Okung is now looking for a second opinion on the injury and will visit Dr. Robert Anderson, a noted foot specialist, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

The Seattle left tackle injured himself during the Sunday night game against the 49ers and was replaced by starting left guard Paul McQuistan. Okung had already been ruled out for Week 3 against the Jaguars and could be out for even longer if the visit with Dr. Anderson includes the discovery of more damage.

Okung has been no stranger to injuries since being selected in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, and he has missed 11 games over his three-year career. Rookie undrafted free agent pickup Alvin Bailey is listed as Okung's immediate backup on the Seahawks' official depth chart.
